Eben Etzebeth versus Caterpillar Rucks; Champions Cup Round 4; Predictions for the rest of the tournament

Kooks, Shaun and Thala review the performance of the South African teams in round 4 of the Champions Cup.

We start with the Bulls loss to Lyon and discuss Jake White’s squad system and whether they have any chance against Toulouse in the last 16.

We move onto the Sharks entertaining loss to Harlequins, where we debate how to deal with caterpillar rucks, discuss Marnus Potgieter’s form and how the Sharks may fare in their last 16 clash against Munster.

We then look at the Stormers victory against Clermont and how unbeatable they are in Cape Town, the boost Evan Roos offers and how will the Stormers manage in the next 2 months without their Springboks.

Kooks and Thala look at the last 16 draw and predict an All-URC Champions Cup final. Kooks is already applying for leave to watch Finn Russell face the Lions in Joburg in the Challenge Cup last 16. And this week’s First Phase was making up a team with club positional combinations.
